OAI8, the 8th Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication will
be held in Geneva, Switzerland, from Wednesday 19th to Friday 21st
June 2013. Program details, registration and the call for posters are
now available at https://indico.cern.ch/event/oai8. It is
possible to register for a part or all of the programme.
You are invited to submit a description in the form of a short
abstract if you wish to bring a poster to the workshop giving
details of your project. The poster should be of interest to OAI8
participants and directly related to the general themes of the
Posters will be displayed in the Uni Mail main hall and an extended
coffee break will take place on Thursday 20 June 2013. This will
give attendees the chance to view these and discuss them with the
author. Attendees will also have the opportunity to vote for the
poster which delivers the most impact. Posters should be A0 in size
(841 x 1189 mm) for portrait or A1 (594 x 841 mm) for landscape.
Any special equipment requests should be addressed to the workshop
organisers when a poster has been accepted.
If your poster is accepted you should still register for the
workshop as normal and you will be expected to pay your own
expenses. Owing to the large demand on accommodation, we advise you
to register early - you may cancel your registration later if your
submission is not successful.
Poster abstracts can be submitted until 1 April 2013 after a quick
registration process (different from the conference
registration). Decisions will be made on an ongoing basis (and no
later than the end April) and communicated to the submitters.
The poster submission form is available at
The committee looks forward to welcoming you to Geneva.
